Hi all, I'm finally upgrading from my decent i7 Dell Inspiron laptop to a gaming rig, with a pretty average budget. I have a rough parts list assembled, but would like some feedback, specifically on motherboard and graphics. I'd like a pc that can game pretty well, and be an upgrade from my current laptop experience (around 50fps in medium/high settings)

Budget (including currency): £800

Country: England

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Rocket League, GTA V, Fortnight, ETS2 etc

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 - £179 Amazon
asus rog strix b450f - £100 Amazon
16gb corsair vengence 3200 - £65 Amazon
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB - £300 Currys (£208 Business)

corsair 650w cv series - £65 Currys

I will also need a monitor and case, but any money saved form parts can go to that.
 Eventually i would like to upgrade to a 1080p 144Hz monitor as a main display, and also be capable of dual monitors for productivity as an Engineering student. 

I don't know much about motherboards, and i also dont know for my graphics card to get a 2060, 1660, 1060 SUPER. I dont know if the difference in price is worth it. I've also included a siggested partslist form another forum too. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks all.

could save some money going with a P300A  not a h510, and put that money towards more storage.

Thanks for your help, i hadn't even thought about that graphics card. I'm assuming the motherboard has wireless internet too? Very new to actually building PC's, so don't wanna make any stupid mistakes

Sadly, the motherboard does not have wireless internet. Having Wi-Fi built into the mobo adds around $30-$50. Ethernet is much better anyway, but if you need wireless, you could always go with a Wi-Fi adapter, that is what I did and it runs beautifully. I made a ton of stupid mistakes when I built my rig, spent too much on ram, got a bad PSU. If you need any help, feel free to ask!
